Justice Tip Against You

A DUI can result in the impounding of your vehicle

Being accused of drunk driving can trigger a host of events. One of these might be that your vehicle is impounded. This means that a tow truck comes to pick up the vehicle and takes it to the lot where it will be stored until you are able to retrieve it. Lots have limitations on how long they will hold cars, so you should try to find your vehicle and get it back as soon as possible.

As the owner of your vehicle, you will be responsible for paying all fees associated with the impound. This includes the hook-up fee, distance fee, lot storage fee and more. This can add up to a hefty sum.

In order to get your vehicle, you will have to show proof of ownership, proof of identification and proof of insurance. If there is a hold on the vehicle for any reason, such as unpaid taxes, you won't be able to get your vehicle until that hold is released. You might be asked to show proof of the release.

On top of the impound situation, you are also facing the possibility of having your driver's license suspended. Therefore, you may well need to bring someone with you to retrieve your vehicle who can drive it home for you.

There is also the matter of the criminal case against you. You might be looking at time in jail, fines and an increase in insurance premiums. It's wise to seek the assistance of an experienced attorney who can protect your rights and help you work on your defense strategy.
